Stylesheet problem


Lonz

Recommended Posts

I'm by no means an expert on the CSS stylesheet front. So I'd like a few pointer over a small problem I'm facing. I'm trying to get a few borders in my template to tidy things up a bit. I've attached some screenshots to help illustrate my problem, as well as an extract from the stylesheet and template headers/footers.

 

I'm sure someone in the know will quickly find and solve the problem :)

 

Here is what the template looks like so far:

Here is what it should look like according to Frontpage, without the actually panel interface:

In the TCAdmin Custom Header/Footer templates, I have put the following:

 

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-gb">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<style>
<!--
body         { background-image: url('images/bg.gif'); background-repeat: repeat-x }
-->
</style>
</head>

<body bgcolor="#242C31">

<div align="center">
 <center>
 <table border="0" width="750" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" class="overall_table">
   <tr>
     <td width="100%" style="background-image: url('images/table_bg.gif'); background-repeat: repeat-x; border: 1 solid #C0C0C0">
       <table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="3" cellpadding="0">
         <tr>
           <td width="100%" style="border: 1 dotted #BBC5CC" height="75" class="overal_top">
             <table border="0" width="100%" height="75" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
               <tr>
                 <td width="50%" style="background-image: url('images/inner_top_bg.gif'); background-repeat: repeat-x" bgcolor="#202A31" valign="top"><img border="0" src="images/logo_left.gif" width="278" height="75"></td>
                 <td width="50%" style="background-image: url('images/inner_top_bg.gif'); background-repeat: repeat-x" bgcolor="#202A31" valign="top"> </td>
               </tr>
             </table>
           </td>
         </tr>
         <tr>
           <td width="100%" style="border: 1 dotted #BBC5CC">
             <p align="center">

 

And for the footer:

 

          </tr>
         <tr>
           <td width="100%" style="border: 1 dotted #BBC5CC" class="overall_bottom">
             <p align="center"><font face="Verdana" size="1" color="#C0C0C0"><b>© Copyright
             CGZServers.co.uk - 2007.<br>
             All Rights Reserved.</b></font></td>
         </tr>
       </table>
     </td>
   </tr>
 </table>
 </center>
</div>

</body>

</html>

 

Notice I have added the "class" tags in myself, I assumed this was what was necessary to identify a seperate part of the stylesheet. So I continued to add the following lines of code on the bottom of my Styles.css in the /Default/ folder.

 

 

.overall_table
{
border: 1 solid #C0C0C0;
}

.overall_top
{
background-color: #202A31;
border: 1 dotted #BBC5CC;
}

.overall_bottom
{
border: 1 dotted #BBC5CC;
}

 

 

However, as you can see, no borders show up.

 

Any pointers as to where I'm going wrong? Apart from that, very happy with how it's coming along :). I shall be releasing it for public use very shortly after completion.

What browser are you looking at this at? and which browser are you writing the css for? that could easily be the problem, IE and the others have big issues sometimes with frames compared to other similar software. Many frustrations over this across the industry hehe :)

Borders should be doable in firefox as well. Try adding px to your code

.overall_table
{
border: 1px solid #C0C0C0;
}

.overall_top
{
background-color: #202A31;
border: 1px dotted #BBC5CC;
}

.overall_bottom
{
border: 1px dotted #BBC5CC;
}

 

Also from time to time when IE and firefox do want different codes in CSS to work, you can ussually put both codes in and have it work ;)
